Here we are, day two of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month)! Why, you might ask, put myself through a month of striving to write close to 1,700 words a day? For the same reason the martial artist beats his arm on a wall; to get stronger. When I set out to finally get this story out of my head and onto paper, I thought, I’m going to write a book. This will be fun! Oh, my naïve self. Little did I know just what I was signing up for!
Don’t get me wrong, it is a lot of fun. I can lose myself in writing and not even realize an entire day has flown by. But the sheer amount of work that goes into it is insane. And, now that book one is officially published, I’m pressing on to book two. I figured, what better time to start another book than in a month set aside to write one? So, here I am pounding out the words in an attempt to make it to 50,000 in one month. I may or may not still have my sanity by the end! Ha!
Through it all, I’m seeing the overwhelming support of my friends and family as they spur me on. So far, my fans range from 8-75 years old. I can’t get over how incredible that is. Every day I’m blessed more and more by the excitement of my growing group of readers. God started this ball rolling; I can’t wait to see where he takes it!
